It was harmless fun, and "give peace a chance" was inspired. We need more things that make us chuckle rather than tut over whether it might be offending someone else.

Appalling that you think it's ok to say the word chuckle so soon after Barry's death. Appalling. Moderator please ban.

There certainly bee a change in the attitude of the club since ME came in as CEO to give a more corporate approach to the club which has taken away some of the old style geniality of the amateur days such as the jovial music and the family feel and bring in a more structured approach such as certain players being available in the Kings Bar after the match rather than all the players just going to the bar after etc.

It has brought in a lot of revenue (second highest in Prmeirship) but also brought in a lot more costs such as a director earning £215,000 per year!

OK I slightly segwayed a bit to the other topic regarding costs and revenues, but it relates a bit becaue Max did not want to follow what they wanted to do so left amongst other former staff members etc.

On the other side of the argument, I found Max pretty annoying and am a lot happier with the quality of facilities and stuff for kids etc since it changed. Players appearing in the bar sadly is down to the professionalisation and growth of the sport - not sure you'll find that anywhere but not sure it's just a Quins decision.

What? Kids stuff is worse! It used to be inside, expecting the kids to hang around outside in the middle of the winter is daft! Bars are basically unimproved and now supposed to be catering for nearly twice as many people!

The kids stuff used to be in a tent where the south west food stalls now are during much of the Mad Max era.

But at least it was covered! It's in the open air in the same corner now. It was laterly in the players bar, that's now used for more hospitality.

It was Nad Max that did it they haven’t done it since he left I thought it was a bit of harmkess fun and anyone who thought it disrespectful needs to go and have a strong word with themselves

but some people want to be offended

Not offended by it, just thought it was a bit naff. Thought "give peace a chance" was much funnier. Anyway, it was the players who wanted it binned.

Do other clubs play tunes like that in similar situations?

From memory, the not-nots play "three blind mice" when they get what they perceive to be a dodgy decision from the ref...
